“Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.”
—Steve Jobs

What is Web.Comp?

Web.Comp is a web competition for school students. We’ll teach you how to build a website as we go along, rather than expecting you to be an expert already.

Web.Comp 2019 will run for 5 weeks, starting from February 2019. Each week, we'll release interactive notes with the information you'll need to complete the week's web design challenges. The last week will be a web design tournament where you can submit your own design and vote on everyone else's!

Why learn HTML & CSS?

Every time you use the web, you're seeing HTML and CSS. Creating a website is one of the most useful technical skills you can learn.

Web.Comp teaches you HTML and CSS, the powerful building blocks needed to build a website from scratch. Learning to write HTML and CSS by hand gives you full control over the look and interactivity of your site, so you can implement your web designs exactly as you imagined them!

Student designs from 2018

Check out some student designs submitted to the Web Design Tournament in Web.Comp 2018. Students with no previous coding experience were given the HTML for "The Plant Warehouse" (a fictional plant sale) in Beginners, and "gBay" (a fictional online marketplace) in Intermediate, which they styled using the web design skills they'd learned in the previous four weeks!
